What You Should Know About Transferring Properties Into an LLC
I’m not a lawyer or CPA, but here’s what I know from working with intelligent professionals: it’s in your best interest to put your rental properties in an LLC as a long-term strategy. If your financing situation requires that you buy an investment in your own name, typically that’s fine. But long-term, you’ll likely want to transfer for liability purposes. I would suggest reaching out to a real estate lawyer or our friends at Corporate Direct to discuss your personal situation and strategy.
How to Find Cash Flow Positive Rental Properties
One of the most important factors to consider when you invest is which rental market you choose. Investing in a market with overinflated values is sure to set you up for failure. If you want to invest in cash flow positive rental properties, I’d suggest scheduling a free call with my team: this is what we do!
How to Utilize Equity If You Don’t Want to Change Your Mortgage Interest Rate
If you have a low interest rate on your mortgage, now is not the time to refinance. In general, I don’t necessarily suggest a cash-out refinance. If I were in this situation, I’d keep my low-interest mortgage and continue to pay it down. Then, you can consider tapping into your equity with a HELOC. It’s a totally separate product from your mortgage, it allows you to access your equity, and it doesn’t impact your mortgage balance or interest rate.
